China Glaze - Up & Away

I already posted about China Glaze's Spring 2010 line, Up & Away, but I had a chance to test out a few of the colors and they are so candy-licious. The colors I tried out remind me of candy heart colors, Happy Go Lucky (sunshine yellow), Something Sweet (cotton candy pink), Re-Fresh Mint (spearmint green), perfect timing for Valentine's Day.

Below I have on Re-Fresh Mint. This color is so refreshing (pun intended) and fun. It's very unique, and although I'm not a nail polish expert, I have never seen a color like this. It's the perfect intro color into spring this year. I can't wait to wear it on my toes with a white sundress.

Note: This review includes products that I received as samples, provided by the brand company or a PR rep. Please click here for more information regarding my disclaimer.
